“This has allowed for us to improve the overall patient experience in our physical therapy department,” said Chastity Trivette, assistant administrator at Johnson County Community Hospital. 

The renovation took 14 months from concept to completion and cost more than $200,000. It included design time, fundraising efforts and construction, as well as hand-selecting each piece of furniture, artwork and medical equipment.

The Mountain States Foundation raised and funded over $150,000 of the project, using proceeds from the Taste of the Mountains and the Surviving the Snake bike ride event, in addition to individual gifts.

“I want to give a huge thanks to Lynn Livesay and her team and also to Larry Stout for all the assistance they gave during the project,” Trivette said. “Also, I want to thank all of the donors and the Johnson County Community Hospital Foundation for making this project possible.”

The physical therapy department at Johnson County Community Hospital provides physical therapy for orthopedic injury or surgery recovery, hand therapy, amputations, brain injuries and stroke. There is also cardiac rehabilitation for post-heart attack recovery.
